The Crouch Case
Much of the material previously discussed regarding civil and criminal commitment can perhaps best be grasped if it is reviewed in the context of a concrete case. The present chapter will attempt that review and will seek also to introduce certain other important issues in the commitment process. Finally, as the culminating chapter in the commitment portion of the book, this chapter will explore, through the case example, some salient aspects of the relationship between the systems of civil and criminal commitment.
